Course Description: This course will be geared towards 4th-8th graders interested in learning more about various science topics. We will cover material from middle school science all the way to advanced high school science topics in order to help prepare the students for higher level classes they will take in the future. Students will learn different science topics in the form of a lecture for the first hour of the class and then work in groups on a project (such as making posters, booklets, designing experiments), science games, or science experiments for the last 40 minutes of class.
Materials: Notebook; Binder; Pencil/Pen; Loose-leaf notebook paper; At home: computer to access google classroom for tests/homework
Teacher: Callista Holleschak I am a senior at Green Hope High School and my main hobby and passion is learning science. I have been participating in the Science Olympiad Varsity team for 4 years, have taken many AP level science classes, as well as am the youngest NASA iTech competition finalist, and winner of the international innovation and entrepreneurial Conrad Challenge. I hope to encourage students to help develop the skills they will need to excel in high school and help them dive into the world of science, as well as inspire them to create their own scientific projects to make the world a better place.
